University Ave. traffic project to allievate congestion | News
Public input sought on corridor improvement study
A group is seeking public input on a study of transportation on the near west side.
A workshop will be held Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. in the cafeteria at Madison West High School. Organizers said attendee participation is sought during an informal needs and goals workshop will take place at 7 p.m.
The University Avenue corridor area and nearby neighborhood streets are the focus of the project, which is a collaboration between the city, the Village of Shorewood Hills and UW-Madison.
The group will develop a plan to help alleviate heavy daily traffic -- which is in excess of 50,000 vehicles per average weekday, according to the city traffic engineering department -- in the corridor area and its effect on travel times and the surrounding residential neighborhoods.
